VW2017 sp1 export web view error/ not working

Question

Can anyone help, the 'export web view' command isn't working in VW2017. I've reinstalled VW (twice) and  no joy. The command seems to run, but then it returns an error script box (see attachment). An HTML file is generated, along with a few other files, but when shared by email, it doesn't work (on PC; laptops, or I-phone/ I-pad). Am I doing something wrong?!

My machine uses the dongle version of VW on a PC. Has anyone else had this issue? Really not sure what to do next. Any help gratefully appreciated.

thanks

Mark

Hi MRD2016A,

I am sorry you are having problems with the Export Web View feature. Can you attach the VWX file that you are currently trying to export? Also, does this happen with every model you try to export? This will at least tell me a little of what is going on. 

 

There also might be a problem with the dongle-based license, but I am not sure yet. 

 

I would have to test from my side and see what is going on.

 

Thanks!

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

This happens with every VW2017 model on my PC. I've installed VW2017 (same file as is installed on my PC) onto my laptop, and using the same dongle and all works fine.

Not sure if this may help, I'm using windows 7 pro with sp1 with Kaspersky Total security.

 

Many thanks

Mark

Hey Mark,

 

I am not entirely sure why it would do this, but I just created this link for you of your attached model: https://vgx.vectorworks.net/export-a1478527965979g1478527965979o1478527965979r1478527965979b1478527965979a1478527965979t1478527965979y/WebGlTemplate.html . It looks like it is failing when it is trying to open your file on the browser. So the model should be uploaded. You should also see a url file within the place where you exported. Do you see something like what is attached?

 

Thanks!

Andrew

Hello AndrewG,

 

If the solution is out there.. why isn't it posted here!? It makes this thread kind of useless..

I have the same problems with 90% of my models.

 

Bye

Hey Rick,

 

The script responsible for uploading the model is located here: (Vectorworks Directory)/Plug-Ins/ExportWebGl/Scripts/uploader.py.

 

Once you have found the file, download the zip file, and unzip to get the modified file (uploader.py), and replace the one that is currently there with the one that is attached here.

 

Then, run Vectorworks, export as normal, and see if that works. If it doesn't work, please report the error message back to me.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks!

Andrew
